Law firm names new partners


A leading south west law firm has promoted four of its lawyers to partner after a successful year of financial and business growth.

Stephens Scown LLP has promoted four senior associates to partner. They are Charisse Crawford of the inheritance and trust disputes team, David Culshaw of the corporate team who is also head of food and drink, Mike Davies who is a disputes resolution specialist, and Giles Dunning of the corporate team who specialises in work in the IFA sector.

The promotions come as Stephens Scown begins its new financial year on May 1. Last financial year saw revenue grow by 18% to £17.8 million.

Commenting on the promotions, managing partner Robert Camp said: “It’s always gratifying to be able to make new partners in the firm.

“My warm congratulations to all four individuals, who have shown great commitment to their clients over the past year and played an important role in our growth.  We had a strong year last financial year and I’m confident that we can continue in the same vein through 2016/2017.”

Stephens Scown has over 290 staff, including more than 50 partners, across its offices in Exeter, Truro and St Austell.
